Rumor: Michael Bisping vs. Denis Kang In The Works For UFC 105

Michael BispingRumors are making the rounds today that a middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Denis Kang is in the works to co-headline UFC 105 on November 14 in Manchester, England.

Bisping (17-2), who had been approached about fighting Wanderlei Silva in the UFC 105 main event before Silva recently underwent surgery to repair a deviated septum, is coming off a devastating knockout loss to Dan Henderson at UFC 100 last month, his first loss since moving down to middleweight in 2008. The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner is 7-2 in the UFC, including recent wins at 185-pounds over Charles McCarthy, Jason Day, and Chris Leben prior to the loss to Henderson.

The former PRIDE and one-time DREAM fight Kang (32-11-1) was upset by Alan Belcher in his UFC debut in January, but bounced back with a unanimous decision victory over Xavier Foupa-Pokam in April in his most-recent fight.

UFC 105 is expected to air on tape-delay on Spike TV and will be headlined by a lightweight championship matchup between title-holder BJ Penn and challenger Diego Sanchez.
